Bad news, the Grand Mac is about to be taken off the McDonald’s menu

Goodnight, sweet prince.

Time is running out.

It’s bad news people. It’s really bad news. McDonald’s are taking the Grand Big Mac off the menu. It’s going to be gone, forever. It will all just be a sweet, precious, meaty memory.

The new burger was launched as part of a celebration of the Big Mac’s 50th birthday, alongside the Mac Junior, which I’m pretty sure nobody actually bought. Why would anyone go for the smaller Big Mac?

The Grand Mac, on the other hand. Boy oh boy. Now we’re talking.

The burger, far right, obviously, will set you back £4.09 and you have until the 20th of March to grab one, before they’ll be gone for good.

The Big Mac was first created in February 1968 by an American McDonald’s franchisee named Jim Delligatti in Pennsylvania, USA. Delligatti originally wanted to call the burger ‘The Aristocrat’, however after lengthy consideration McDonald’s chose to go with the now famous name.

It’s a good job they did, because a special edition burger called ‘The Grand Aristocrat’ would have been problematic for a huge number of reasons.

*a single tear drips from my eye* Goodnight, sweet prince.
